You can buy everything from weird medicines to counterfeit watches here. This is a place steeped in Hong Kong history and you can really feel the local vibe here.
- Repulse Bay
Repulse Bay sits on the southern part of Hong Kong Island and this crescent-shaped sandy beach is one of the priciest residential areas in the world and it’s definitely one of the most gorgeous beaches in Hong Kong. Repulse Bay is a popular go-to beachside destination if you are yearning for some sun-soaked fun. The colonial-style building, The Repulse Bay houses many shops and restaurants and it is just steps away from the beach.
If you like the laidback seaside vibe you have to head to Stanley when you visit Hong Kong. Tourists visually visit Stanley for day trips and they can tuck into many local and global fares at the many eateries there. Things sold at Stanley Market are generally overpriced as they are mainly catered for tourists. You can still enjoy the bustling atmosphere here. There’s also the Murray House which is a beautifully restored former colonial barracks. There are a variety of restaurants and shops here.
